RCRC Event: It’s Time to Talk About Reproductive Justice

Join the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice of Colorado as we welcome our panel of speakers for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion on reproductive justice focusing on the November’s ballot initiative, the so-called “personhood amendment.” Defining personhood is a controversial topic and is closely tied to concepts of equality, citizenship, and religion.

Personhood has long been a topic of debate. It was questioned during the abolition of slavery and the fight for women’s rights. It is the focus of discussions about abortion, and fetal and reproductive rights. There are many religious views on reproductive justice including what constitutes personhood, access to contraception, sexuality education, and reproductive health care including abortion.

When: Thursday, May 8, 7-8:30pm
Where: Temple Emanuel, 51 Grape Street, Denver

THE EVENT IS FREE. After short remarks from each of our presenters, the discussion will be opened to Q&A. Coffee, tea and dessert will be served. Although the event is free, please R.S.V.P. to with the number attending to ensure plenty of refreshments.

See flyer for more info.
